Reduced Travel Time
Increase Mobility + Connectivity
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Palmetto Commerce Interchange project is a Charleston County-led effort intended to improve travel times, access options and mobility along a rapidly growing portion of the Interstate 26 corridor.
The project will ultimately result in a new interchange on I-26 between US 78 (University Boulevard) and Ashley Phosphate Road, which will provide a connection to Palmetto Commerce Parkway, Weber Boulevard and Ingleside Boulevard. The new link, which will include approximately 0.5-miles of four-lane road, will relieve major traffic congestion along these heavily travelled roads and an extremely busy segment of I-26.
In addition to alternative travel routes, the project will provide access to existing and planned developments along Palmetto Commerce Parkway and Ingleside Boulevard. When complete, the interchange is expected to improve mobility and serve as a direct route for workers who are traveling to various facilities in and around Palmetto Commerce Park.
PROJECT TIMELINE & PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT
The project team is currently assessing design alternatives and welcoming public input. Our goal is to complete the assessment in 2017 and hold a public hearing in spring 2019 to present the preferred alternative.
